The words they sang...

Mr Sandman, bring me a dream, give him a pair of eyes with a come-hither gleam, give him a lonely heart like Pagliacci and lots of wavy hair like Liberace’ - the Chordettes, 1954 hit Mr Sandman

‘Tonight with words unspoken you tell me I’m the only one, But will my heart be broken when the night meets the morning sun?’ - The Shirelles 1960 hit Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?

Dad’s gone down the dog track, mother’s playing bingo, Grandpa’s swearing at the telly trying to make the thing go, No-one seems to notice me, isn’t it a sin, what a crazy world we’re living in…’ - Joe Brown,’s hit of the early 60s.

C’mon pretty baby let’s a-move it and ‘a-groove it, shake oh baby, shake oh baby please don’tt lose it…’ - Cliff Richard first No 1 hit, Move It.
